Finley's Birthday Card

Promised to show you the card I made for Finley which I'd also put forward for the High Hopes Guest DT spot, however, it didn't work its magic {big tear}........never mind, better luck next time! However, did have some good news - I won the prize on Friday Sketchers! I'm such a dozey old mare - I visited the blog to check out the sketch for this week and didn't even notice my name in the posting!!


Well, here's the card which I actually quite like (and so did Finley by the way!). I just adore these dragons from High Hopes and think the Basic Grey Archaic papers go perfectly with them. Distressed some of the edges and used my sewing machine for the stitching. Rounded the corners and added some jumbo eyelets from SU and some grosgrain ribbon from my stash. The metal clip is also something I've had for ages - it might be Making Memories but not entirely sure about that.
